Value component of a query band specification.

pair_value can be up to 256 VARCHAR UNICODE characters in length.

The number of name=value pairs is limited to the maximum length of the string, which is 2,048 UNICODE characters, including pad characters.

pair_value cannot contain any of the following characters.
  • SEMICOLON (;)
  • a null

If an APOSTROPHE character is embedded within a pair value, you must type it twice, to escape it. Otherwise, the system interprets it as a pair_name =pair_value string terminator.

Do not specify reserved pair values. For a list of reserved query band values, see SQL Data Definition Language - Detailed Topics, B035-1184.
